Recycling Batteries Responsibly

  • The European Directive on Batteries and Accumulators aims to minimise the impact of batteries on the environment and encourage the recovery of the materials they contain. In the UK, regulations on the recycling of batteries and accumulators (rechargeable batteries) were Introduced in 2009. The Waste Batteries Regulations aim to significantly increase UK collection and recycling of used portable batteries from 3% in 2007 to 25% by 2012, rising to at least 45% in 2016.

  • The battery symbol on a product or on its packaging indicates that the product must not be disposed of with general household waste. Instead, it is the consumer’s responsibility to dispose of their waste batteries at a designated collection point so that they can be recycled. The separate collection and recycling of batteries at the time of dispo sal will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that they are recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. A comprehensive list of battery recycling centres can be obtained from: www.recycle-more.co.uk

  • All Samsung products that are subject to the Batteries Directive are compliant with the UK battery and accumulator Requirements. In accordance with national law, SAMSUNG Electronics (UK) Ltd is a member of an approved batteries producer compliance scheme. This scheme collects, treats and disposes of batteries on Samsung’s behalf.

Super valuable! Worth every penny!

When it comes to design, Samsung is always my favourite. Everything is sleek and creative, and just makes me smile. I got the Note over a year ago, and I absolutely love it.

Every phone I've had before I have ended up despising, but the Galaxy Note is AMAZING. Beautiful design, lots of power, battery charge lasts a long time. I've never had a problem with this phone, and I still have an uncracked screen after dropping it over 100 times! I love this phone!

The big screen is great for surfing the web.

I have owned and used this phone for two years now. I really like it, especially the big screen. I was thinking of getting a tablet and a new phone but when I tried this phone I realized I could have both in one unit.

I have not had any performance issues with my Note. It is still serving me well.

Samsung Galaxy Note (T-Mobile)

T-Mobile's Samsung Galaxy Note is almost identical to the AT&T version . As a result, portions of this review come from the AT&T review. I assess differences in the OS, apps, call quality, and performance here.
